KDE 4.4.4 spanish language issue.

Sun Jul 04, 2010 3:58 pm
Greetings.
I have recently made a fresh KDE 4.4.4 installation, then I built kde-i10n package from source, then I changed language at control center but I realise that the enviroment has not be entirely translated, it is in spanglish now.
Both kdebase and kde-l10n are the same version (4.4.4) and has been built from source using portage. I have never had this problem before. What could it be?
I've read another thread with my same problem, that person fixed it reinstalling kde packages, but it makes no sense for me as I've made a fresh KDE installation over a fresh gentoo installation.
Thanks.

Have you logged out and back in again following the language change?

Yes, I even restarted the PC. It always worked for me logging out and then entering again, but I don't know what happens now :(

If you create a new user, then change their language does it work as expected?

Unfortunately I don't know why this is occurring. Please try ensuring the languages ( kde4-l10n ) are fully installed, then please file a bug at bugs.kde.org.

Before sending a bug report. I'm trying to compile kde-l10n from source instead of using portage. Maybe the kde-l10n ebuild is broken who knows...
I downloaded kde-l10n-es-4.4.4.tar.bz2, then extracted it (to /usr/src), cmake CMakeLists.txt, make, make install. But there is no spanish language to choose at system settings. What am I doing wrong?

You're installing to /usr/local, not /usr.

Call cmake with -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr


// Debian Sid amd64 KDE 4.6.5.
// Debian Squeeze i386. KDE 4.4.5.
connect(post,SIGNAL(readSignature()),qapp,SLOT(quit()));

Thanks, it worked. However, the language problem have not changed at all so I'm going to send a bug report.

I had the same problem and I solved it setting up the "locales". You should read this guide: http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/guide-localization.xml

For the impatient:

# echo "LANG=es_ES.UTF-8" > /etc/env.d/02locale
# echo "LC_COLLATE=C" >> /etc/env.d/02locale
# env-update && source /etc/profile

check your new locales:

# locale

I'm not sure if you have to restart KDM, but it could work just re-logging in. Anyway,

# /etc/init.d/xdm restart

or easier:

# reboot

If you dont have "es_ES.UTF-8" use "es_ES" or other that you had. You can see the available locales by typing:

# locale -a

To generate locales read the manual (but you should know how to, since it is a issue in the Gentoo installation docs):

# man locale-gen
